The reissuing of albums which soundtracked your youth for anniversary editions has a habit of making you feel very, very old. This one is no different. The 2009 seminal album Nights Out was the breakthrough of Metronomy and now they’re sharing a new 10th-anniversary edition of the LP.
The record will feature a whole host of b-sides and rarities of the band’s breakthrough LP. Some of these rarities are a French version of ‘Heartbreaker’ as well as a late night dub version of ‘Holiday’.
Joe Mount explains, “Oscar reminded me the other day how I said to him on completing “Radio Ladio” “I think I’ve just written my first number 1”. I hadn’t. We also reminisced about the day we borrowed the Honda Insight for the album artwork: I found the owner on an enthusiasts chat room, we gave his daughter two Kate Nash tickets and a meet and greet with Kate in exchange for a few shots with the vehicle… simpler times. Shout out to Myspace.”
The album will be released on February 8th via Because Music.
